Tuition-free classes in Lake County



Important Notice

Seats are assigned on the basis of students' test scores and class availability; taking the placement test does not guarantee a seat in a class.


Adult Education classes are intended for people who live in Lake County. They are not appropriate for students with B1, B2, F1, F2, J1 or J2 visas, nor are they appropriate for short-term visitors to the U.S.

In general, students must be at least 18 years old in order to enroll in adult education classes. However, 16-year-olds and 17-year-olds may register with an official Secondary School Reference Form signed by their local High School authorized representative.

U.S. High School graduates and 16-year-olds must meet additional eligibility requirements.

Students must attend an orientation session before scheduling a placement test and attending classes.
